|The Beachcomber - Charles Laughton, Erich Pommer|
AKA Vessel of Wrath. If you enjoy Somerset Maugham stories, then you will enjoy this near-perfect, delightful film adaptation. The characters catch the essence of Maugham, and both Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchester (husband and wife team) breath life into two very opposite sorts of people who discover--through adversity--that they have more in common than they dreamed possible

|THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN 1935 trailer|
One of the rare instances where a sequel improves upon an iconic original. The scene in which Ernest Thesiger has dinner with the monster Karloff is alone worth the price of admission.

|The Private Life of Henry VIII. - Alexander Korda, Ludovico Toeplitz|
The film follows the private life of the infamous 16th century British monarch, King Henry the VIII, and his misadventures in his various marriages. Henry the VIII is wonderfully portrayed by the highly talented and entertaining Charles Laughton, a masterful one-of-a-kind character actor who managed to land many plum roles despite looking like a bloated fish. Laughton portrays the King as a rollicking, impetuous, boozing lover of women...

|James Whale's "BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN" trailer (1935)|
Who said that this sequel to James Whale's other classic "Frankenstein" was even better that the original? Well, I agree totally. The film is fun and fast paced, and as modern as ever. Very queer too!! No wonder the Rocky Horror Show made it a "flanboyant transgender epic". more info on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026138/
